I had to make a few additional changes on top of this patch to get a
successful compile with u-boot v2016.03. These changes can be seen here:


After those changes though, everything worked as expected on both an
original rpi B+ and an rpi3.

Does your patch work cleanly on a later version of u-boot? I know
oe-core is likely to upgrade to v2016.11 any day now. We could either
apply the changes I've linked to above or hold off until v2016.11 is
merged to oe-core if that's what you've tested with.
